“If you plan it right, all you do is reap.” – Padi, the Abuelo of Punta Mona
This week in Unsettled’s Endless Summer Series we are venturing into the primary rainforest of Costa Rica. Welcome to Punta Mona, a private and sustainable beachfront oasis, for one week of off-grid exploration this October 13-19. Punta Mona was designed by a world renowned permaculturalist and it has more than 300 varieties of tropical fruit and nut trees, abundant root crops, vegetables, and over 150 medicinal plants. As Director of Punta Mona, Stephen Brooks, says, plants teach us “how to play better in the sandbox with our fellow humans.” Ready to explore this sandbox?

#WhereIsUnsettled going next? We are announcing a NEW destination this week, where we’ll be spending a week surrounded by nature, with miles of undeveloped tropical beach to ourselves for thoughtful reflection, and not a car, road, or town in sight! 🌿🌺 This retreat is about stepping outside of your daily grind and giving yourself the space, time, and tools to intentionally navigate through uncertainty, a career transition, or to build more meaningful work/life symmetry. We just so happen to be on the coast of ________ _________. Know where we’re going? Person with the best guess will get a DM with all the details and how you can be part of this retreat. . #BeUnsettled #EmbraceTheUnknown #Travel
